Survivor®, an award-winning designer and pioneer of rugged device protection engineered for the front lines and used by everyone, today announced its International Women’s Day campaign. “Survivor Stories” is an initiative that celebrates inspirational women and shares their stories of overcoming hurdles in their lives. Throughout the month of March, Survivor will highlight notable women, including motivational speaker, army veteran and former Miss USA Deshauna Barber, and Olympic track and field athlete Tianna Bartoletta.
As part of its International Women’s Day campaign, Survivor has partnered with Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN), whose CEO, Deshauna Barber, works tirelessly to shed light on the stories of this nation’s dedicated and fearless servicewomen. Barber and SWAN will encourage women to share their own “Survivor Stories” on social media to celebrate the resilience and empowerment of all women worldwide throughout the month of March. Survivor will also donate 25 percent of the month’s product sales from Verizon.com and GetSurvivor.com to SWAN1.
“We’re honored to be partnering with Deshauna Barber to not only amplify her incredible story, but to give back to SWAN and support women who have served or are currently serving in the military as well,” said Brian Stech, CEO of Survivor. “In uplifting stories such as Deshauna’s and other women surviving obstacles in their lives, we at Survivor are pledging our commitment to continue to empower women and shine a light on marginalized voices.”
SWAN is a member-driven organization serving as a voice for women who have served or are currently serving in the U.S. military. The only network focused on the needs of service women and women veterans, SWAN is devoted to supporting, connecting, and advocating for the individual and collective needs of past, present, and future service women.
“I’m excited to be aligned with Survivor and share my story on their social channels to reach women who’ve overcome in their own way, and to encourage others to celebrate their unique experiences,” said Deshauna Barber, CEO of SWAN. “SWAN is incredibly grateful for the donation being made, which will help the organization continue to do the imperative work it does for women in the military community.”
